Node.js is an avant-garde, event-driven asynchronous input/output system designed for sites that support live interaction. Some instances of such websites are online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js handles the information transmitted between the website and its users in small bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When a certain form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then forwarded as one large chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed the moment it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. Therefore, a lot more info can be handled much faster and more effectively compared with any conventional platform, which can exert an enormous influence on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by many of the biggest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’re able to add this cutting-edge event-driven platform to your shared web hosting account via the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You’ll be able to select the amount of instances for this particular upgrade, i.e. how many separate websites/platforms will use Node.js at the same time, and you can activate as many instances as you require. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to pick the location of your .js application and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a randomly generated port number specified by our cloud system. In addition, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve created, edit the path to the .js application or see the active instances’ output with only a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel via a rather easy-to-navigate interface.
Node.js in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with Node.js as standard and you can take full advantage of this platform for each script-driven software app that you host on the VPS. As we haven’t put a limitation on the number of instances that you can create, you can make use of the power of our servers and mix it with the full capacity of the Node.js platform. The setup is done through the Hepsia Control Panel’s simple-to-navigate, point & click GUI, so even if you are not technically proficient, you will not experience any problems while using the platform. You will simply need to add the path in the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to choose whether it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What’s more, our system will also specify a port to access the file and you will be able to see it in the respective section in the Control Panel. With only one click, you will be able to see your applications’ output and to remove or to reboot any Node.js instance hosted on the Virtual Private Server.
